Jason Garrett on Wednesday weighed in on Jerry Jones all but assuring he’d be back as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys next season.

“It’s not something I really think about very much,” Garrett said Wednesday before practice, via The Dallas Morning News. “I get focused on what I need to do to do my job as well as I can do it. That’s what my intention is, my focus is every day.”

“I know a lot about our coaching staff,” Jones said Tuesday. “I certainly know a lot about Jason Garrett. Because of that, I can very quickly and candidly say his job is not an issue here at all.

“… Let’s just say that it’s not in the best interest of the Cowboys to be considering a coaching change.”

Moore: I'm waiting for Secretary of State's final count

  Moore: I'm waiting for Secretary of State's final count A defiant Roy Moore declined on Wednesday to concede the Alabama Senate election to Democrat Doug Jones, saying that he is waiting on the Alabama secretary of state to certify the vote count. In a wide-ranging video address posted online, Moore said that the race between him and Jones remained close, and that military and provisional ballots had yet to be counted."We are indeed in a struggle to preserve our republic , our civilization , and our religion and to set free a suffering humanity," he said. " And the battle rages on."The address touched on themes familiar to the former Alabama Supreme Court justice's political career.

Jerry Jones addressed the team afterward and insisted he' s still behind Jason Garrett and the coaching staff. Despite missing key pieces, Jones believes the team still has depth and that the men coaching them are right for the job. "Well, I think that again, I've got a lot of optimism for our talent

The Cowboys have obviously endured an extremely disappointing season. Following a 13-3 campaign last season, they (8-7) simply are playing out the string when the team closes out 2017 Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game absence due to suspension obviously did not help matters. There were nevertheless rumblings that it was at least possible Garrett would not be back next season.

Jones seemingly refuted any such notion with his comments this week. Jones, however, conceivably could change his mind at any point. It has been a tumultuous season for the Cowboys, both on and off the field.

The case can be made it was Jones, not Garrett, who was responsible for much of the turmoil in light of his heavy-handed meddling in Roger Goodell’s contract extension. Perhaps Jones feels Garrett deserves another shot given many of the reasons behind the Cowboys’ struggles were somewhat beyond the coach’s control.
